ReasonsToBuy
In order to curb costs, educational institutions spend is typically channelled through framework agreements issued by central ICT teams. Occasionally departments are also given a certain degree of freedom to procure products from their departmental budgets.

Many educational institutions are apprehensive of entrusting their intellectual property including educational and research content, to cloud service providers (public or private).

Educational institutions are looking to explore all available options for streamlining their operations in order to deliver more for less. This is evident from the survey, as institutions give the objective of raising efficiency the highest average rating of X on a scale of 1 to 4.

Educational institutions are not relying solely relying on government grants anymore, and are looking to diversify their income streams further, with IT playing a central role in opening up new revenue generation opportunities.

According to Kables survey, 51% of educational institutions state that their ICT infrastructure is either very complex or somewhat complex. 40% of educational institutions have an ICT infrastructure which is somewhat complex, with a wide variety of hardware manufacturers, operating systems, databases, applications, and other elements, whilst 11% of respondents describe their ICT infrastructure as very complex, with redundant and multiple layers of technological architecture.
